Support and Inspiration from the Sixth Grade

It has been just over a week since I left Lesvos to return back to the USA and I just got home on Monday. I took the longest route home, partially because it was cheapest and partially because I made a detour to see some friends on the east coast. Since getting back to Portland, it's been a whirlwind few days as I tried to get my bearings, as I pack for a move to the Bay on Saturday and as I try to say hi (and bye) to as many people as I can. One of the highest items on my to do list during my 5 days in Portland was to stop by my friend, Ms. Maynard's, sixth grade class.

Where Did You Go, 2015?

Yesterday, when I started writing this post, it was the last day of 2015. Where did this year go? So much has happened, and so much hasn't either. I've been getting all of the "end of the year" type of posts from different places; online retailers I frequent, social networks I'm part of, updates from friends and family... The end of the year is a common time for people to pause, reflect and share the lessons they've learned. To be honest, I don't even know where to start. The past few months have been a blur and I barely think I've had time to breathe or sleep, let alone process what's going on. But that's my life and I've chosen to be that way. No complaints, just sharing observations.
